Comment (by joedolson):

 We discussed this ticket in the accessibility bug scrub, and we're agreed
 that the nature of full site editing and the way it depends on healthy
 block output means that FSE themes shouldn't be able to use the
 accessibility-ready tag until the required block markup also meets those

 If there are fundamental accessibility issues in commonly required blocks
 such as search, menus, archive lists, etc., then those accessibility
 issues are nearly if not actually guaranteed to appear in the resulting
 sites. It would be irresponsible of us to give the impression that an FSE
 site could meet any accessibility requirements if those core blocks won't.
